Disinfecting Solution For Animal Drinking Water

prooxine-drinking-water3ProOxine is the most effective tool for water management in animal facilities. ProOxine  keeps the bacteria level down in the water lines, and    prevents biofilm from developing thus keeping the animals healthier by keeping down the pathogen level that could potentially travel from one animal to another. ProOxine  makes drinking water more palatable to poultry and livestock and therefore they drink more.  Additionally, ProOxine is highly effective in keeping water systems free of build up.

Efficacy of ProOxine against Biofilm    



Efficacy of ProOxine against Salmonella and E-coli



  • Broad spectrum, high antimicrobial activity
  • Kills bacteria, virus, fungi and protozoa
  • Removes bioflm – keeps plumbing clog free
  • Selective chemistry – no reaction with ammonia
  • Effective over a wide pH range
  • Easily implemented and fed to system
  • Not affected by temperature variations
  • Does not chlorinate to form halogenated organics (e.g., THMs, HAAs)
  • Resists neutralization by organic-load and water hardness
  • Highly soluble, permitting it to homogenize throughout the system
  • Excellent oxidizer for iron and manganese, eliminating the buildup of sludge
  • Controls taste and odor problems associated with hydrogen sulfde, chlorophenols and biological organisms
  • Low corrosivity
  • Low toxicity
  • Cost effective

Specific Pathogens

Activated ProOxine at 3 ppm with a ten minute exposure time is an effective disinfectant for poultry and livestock drinking water against the following pathogens:

  • Escherichia coli
  • Enterococcus faecium

ProOxine is an effective virucide against the following pathogens when used at 500 ppm activated use solution with a ten minute contact time:

  • Avian Infuenza A Virus (H3N2)
  • Canine Parvovirus
  • Newcastle Disease Virus (NDV)
  • Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory Disease Syndrome Virus (PRRS)
  • Pseudorabies Virus
  • Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus

ProOxine Versus Chlorine

ProOxine is Better than Chlorine

  • Much greater antimicrobial effcacy
  • More organic-load bearing capability
  • Does not impart offensive odor or taste to drinking water
  • Less corrosive to equipment
  • Works in a wider pH range, (hypochlorites typically lose biocidal effcacy above pH 7; whereas ProOxine  is effective pH range of 3-10, providing microbial control during pH swings in incoming water)
  • Does not create toxic THM’s
  • Safer for workers and the environment
  • 2.6 times more powerful oxidizing capacity than Chlorine
  • Requires much lower use solution than hypochlorites

Comparison With Other Disinfecting Agents


Success Story
  • ProOxine was recently introduced to a large Mid-Atlantic grower operation where the product  competed against 175 other houses. The house employing ProOxine  was the most proftable of all 176 houses.
  • Mortality rates were approximately 5% lower than the average of all other houses. Houses had a mortality rate of 2687 birds per 31,500 as opposed to the ProOxine  house which had a rate of 984 per 31,500
  • The birds treated with ProOxine  weighed 0.48 lbs. per bird more than the mean average of all other houses.
  • The effectiveness of ProOxine  in raising livability rates and promoting larger, healthier birds resulted in an average of 50,000 lbs more bird to the processor over the other houses.
  • With this data, the grower converted all the other houses to ProOxine and is now converting their entire corporate and contract farms to ProOxine!
